Senator GREENWOOD (Victoria) - I think that what the Attorney-General (Senator Murphy) has said is a proposition which the Opposition would welcome. We will leave the matter for him to consider. We regret that he would not accept the proposition, but I see the reasons he puts. We derive some small consolation from the fact that he suggests that the Opposition might be back in power and we might not be able to resist the pressures as strongly as he and his Government.

Senator Murphy - I said in the far distant future.

Senator GREENWOOD - What great consolation we take, I suppose, depends on how distant the prospect is.

Senator Murphy - You will probably be retired by then.

Senator GREENWOOD - I see the way in which the Attorney-General puts it. The Opposition will not ask for a division on this matter in the light of what he has said, but we would appreciate the consideration which he has said he will give to it overnight.

Question resolved in the affirmative.

Clause 52. (Misleading or deceptive conduct.)
